I've got an '04, with an automatic (got married a couple months prior to picking up the vdub, & God forbid I get somethin that she can't drive! :-X ) anyhoo, I've been lookin at mine for a while now & I can't for the life of me figure out how to get it off... seems like the whole damn thing is wrapped w/ leather, but I'd like to swap it out for somethin that looks a little less domestic...
any ideas as to how to get this darn thing off?!
yeah i have a 5spd and i'd love to change the shift knob, but i'm not putting one of those super crappy autozone knobs on my car. if i had an automatic, then i use that as an excuse, "honey, the shift knob broke, so we gotta get a new tranny!" >
There are Screws that are holding the manual shifter down. You have to untwist the little bottom silver piece then you will see the screws. They are L-wrench type of screws. After you unscrew them(about 3 or 4.) I did this about a week ago and I see that people needed help. There is also this little black cyclinder thing under the shifter keep that you might need it for the knob or the new one.
